Walt Disney World Ticket Price Increase 2011

It was announced this afternoon that Disney was increasing ticket prices, yet again.  This increase comes a bit earlier than usual, as most of the time in the recent past, Disney has increased ticket prices in August. 

To see how things have changed now, a One Day Magic Your Way Ticket (a base ticket into one theme park for one day) has increased from $82 to $85, Annual Pass prices increased from $499 to $519 and a one day Water Park Pass will have increased from $46 to $49.

For those who are unaware, here is an explanation of how the the Walt Disney World Ticket Pricing works: 

Base Ticket admits guest to one theme park each day of use. Park choices are: Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Park Hopper option entitles guest to visit more than one theme park on each day of use. Park choices are any combination of Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Animal Kingdom on each day of use.
Water Park Fun & More option entitles guest to a specified number of visits (between 2 and 10) to a choice of entertainment and recreation venues. Choices are Disney’s Blizzard Beach water park, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, DisneyQuest, Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
No expiration means unused admissions on a ticket have no expiration date. All tickets expire 14 days after first use unless No Expiration is purchased.
Annual Pass entitles guest to unlimited admission for 365 days from the activation date (except activities/events separately priced) to Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Animal Kingdom, as well as complimentary parking.

If you purchase them before Sunday via and other sites, you can get at the pre-increase price.
